It's hard sometimes to get the tone right. Mostly I was trying to come
across with a wink. Obviously, I should have stuck in a couple of those
;) emoticons to keep things lighter! :)
Mostly I write to try and provoke discussion, because I tend to believe
one source of information (mine for example) is usually inadequate and
that our collective knowledge is much more useful. Little seems to be
gained in highlighting error as compared to what might be gained
through the sharing of information and alternative perspectives.
It is important to recognize discrepancies, I think; to discriminate and
evaluate differences. But, nothing really happens until information
begins to coalesce and we can begin to work with the patterns which unfold.
...even if we end up going in different directions with what we find,
something is gained.
